  • Bank is first in U.S. to publish ‘unadjusted’ gender pay gap
  •  ‘We should obviously be at 100 percent parity,’ bank says

Citigroup Inc. offered an uncharacteristically blunt assessment of the pay gap between men and women in its global workforce Wednesday, revealing that female employees earn 29 percent less than men do.
